Announcing a new challenge here in Miscellaneous Topics:

The “Anything Goes” Perler Bead Challenge



The winner of our challenge is Helena Puck's Wonder Woman Portrait! 

Congratulations Helena Puck!!




Perler beads (also called Hama beads) are usually used by arranging them into a design and heat-fusing them together to form a flat object, like a coaster or keychain. We want to remove all barriers to creativity, and let you craft anything you want for this challenge!  It doesn’t have to be flat, or heat-fused (although it can be); and you may incorporate other craft materials into your project.  Just be sure to use perler beads too!

Here are some examples of amazing perler bead crafts made by fellow Craftster-ers:

Here is a Craftster Quickies video tutorial about working with perler beads:

The crafting period is from April 30 to June 11 (that's six full weeks--plenty of time for you to come up with something awesome!) Projects are due to be posted June 12 to June 18. Voting will be held June 19 to June 25, with a winner being announced on June 26!


The Fine Print
•   Each participant may enter ONE project, although that project can have multiple components
•   Projects must be handmade by you
•   Post your craft in the Misc. Challenge Board during the period of June 12-June 18; no sooner or later
•   Projects created before or after this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but will be excluded from the voting


The winner of the Anything Goes Perler Bead Challenge will receive this HUGE PACKAGE of perler beads!!!!
Thank you meleriffic for donating this prize!

aww man, i've been wanting an excuse to use pearler beads since they made a come back, i used to have so much fun with them when i was a kid. i may have to make something for this one, just gotta find a good deal on beads, everywhere i've seen they seem more pricey than they should be, or maybe i just haven't bought them in so long that i don't know how much they should be.

It's ironic that I can't enter something in this challenge since I'm helping to host it, because I'm very excited about perler beads! In fact, I went out and bought myself a package of assorted colors, and today I decided to try to make something.  I have a collection of Blythe dolls so I thought I would make them a table, and I must say, it came out great!



Here you can see the underside and the legs before I hot-glued them on.  I made two extra pieces (open squares that look like picture frames) to go under the table top, to give it more depth and to give the legs some support


This was so much fun, and when I was casting around for something to make with my perler beads, I saw a ton of cool projects online. I can't wait to see what YOU make and enter here!  Are you working on something yet? You have until June 11th to create your perler bead masterpiece!
